Download Helper and/or KeepVid

After the extravangances of recent posts, I thought it best to redress the balance with a freebie or two.

Grabbing videos off YouTube is a very useful way of getting some really useful content and being able to rely on it not disappearing. 

Firstly, for your firefox users out there, there is a great plugin (sorry add-on) called Downloadhelper.  Once installed it puts a tiny button on the YouTube pages.  Clicking that button downloads the video.  Simple as that.

But if you’re not allowed to run Firefox, you can always use KeepVid.  This website works in a very similar way.  Just paste the address of the YouTube video you want into the box on the front page and you get instantly download that video.

Personally, I prefer downloadhelper.  It’s quicker and easier, but if you not able to install Firefox, then KeepVid does the job.
